Yoga Courses and Workshops

Yoga Beginners Course

Starting your Yoga practice by getting the basics just right is a really effective way to layer up your understanding of the ancient and modern aspects of Yoga . In this 8 week course, Jill will lead you through the steps to master the most common Yoga Asanas, introduce you to Pranayama (breathwork) and Meditation, as well as discuss some of the philosophical underpinnings. By the end of the course you will feel confident enough to join in with most beginner to intermediate level Hatha or Flow classes.

Testimonials:

“Great start to my yoga journey.  It was particularly helpful to understand the purpose and benefit of the poses and movements”

“If you are a complete beginner and reluctant to join a class, this is perfect!”

Sound & Silence – An Evening Sound Bath

Upcoming Dates:

Friday 8th February, 7.30 – 9.30pm, £22, with Heather Parker

Friday 8th March, 7.30 – 9.30pm, £22, with Heather Parker

Friday 5th April, 7.30 – 9.30pm, £22, with Heather Parker

We would like to invite you to the picturesque surroundings of Wasing Park for a beautiful Sound Bath. The evening will start with some gentle stretching, breath-work and some vocalisation, leading into a guided meditation and then a blissful bath where you will be invited to lie down and be bathed in the sounds and vibrations of the gong, flute, drum, singing bowls, voice and tongue-drum.

Studies have shown that partaking in a Sound bath can greatly reduce stress, anxiety and depression leaving you feeling deeply relaxed and more in balance.  You can use the sounds to aid your meditation practice or you can use it for your own inner journey work.

Testimonials:

“I could feel the vibrations permeating all the cells in my body. I could feel the different levels of sound. It was stunning. Thank you!”

“The singing really invoked so much emotion. I feel healed and nourished to my core.”

Please bring with you a mat if you have one, blankets and cushions for your comfort and water for hydration. Some people prefer to bring an eye-mask.

January Day Retreat & Nourishing Lunch

Sunday 20th Jan 11-5pm, £65, with Jill Watson

On this Sunday Retreat, we will gather and luxuriate in a range of yoga-inspired practices, giving the mind and body the deep rest and care needed to move from a place of connection, balance and love.  We will also set aside time for reflection, to help us uncover our intentions for the next cycle around the sun that will be 2019. The retreat takes place the day before the Full Moon in Leo, so great timing to illuminate the places within us where honesty and courage need to come to the fore.

The day will include one, maybe two, practices of Yoga Nidra (yogic sleep), which not only is extremely restful, but has the effect of touching in on deeper layers of feeling, sensation and insight within us.  There will be Asana practice, blending active yang sequences with some fluid free movement, and peaceful and healing restorative poses.  Finally, there will be the opportunity to enter into deep mediation, and workshop activities to support your reflection.

For lunch, we will share a large pot of Ayurveda-inspired mung bean dhal with rice and salad – soul-warming and cleansing, with lots of garlic, turmeric and ginger.

A range of herbal tea will be available throughout the day.  Please feel free to bring a small gift of dried fruit, chocolate, or other goodies to share.
